Let’s stay on the gender subject. Klub Kids is now one of the biggest drag events in the UK. We chose to shoot our story here to give a voice to a minority that is still practically without rights.
The problem, of course, is not drag queens but our society’s transphobia. If there now it seems to be a vague acceptance of the gay community, the same cannot really be said about all the rest of sexual orientations, or sexual identities. Already with regard to lesbians, compared to gays, there is a sort of silent rejection. For the drag, then, we are still on the high seas.
